Or should it be pass the painkillers?

No, this is not about semantics.  Common painkillers that have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack may also elevate risk of stroke, a new study suggests. While researchers have called the risk ‘small’, it nevertheless exists in people who have taken non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, many of which are available without prescription.

This doesn’t mean that you should grin and bear it when you are in pain. What it does mean, is that medication needs to be taken with caution, and only when necessary. Many people fall into a habit of taking painkillers at the first twinge of pain, or as a preventative measure. Don’t go down this road.
